Just wanted to pass along some information about a new grant offered by the NC Insurance Underwriting Association (NCIUA). If you have a home on the coast, you may be eligible for up to a $6,000 grant toward a FORTIFIED Roof ™ to be installed at your property.
Although sufficient homeowners insurance is essential in protecting your home, a sound architectural structure for your property can be invaluable in withstanding catastrophic weather events. The Insurance Institute for Business & Home Safety (IBHS) created the FORTIFIED Home ™ program to strengthen homes from severe weather using science-based building techniques. During recent hurricanes, a strong roof often made the difference between insignificant damage and catastrophic losses. A FORTIFIED Roof ™ is a comprehensive system designed to keep wind and water out using a wind-driven rain management system.
In recognizing how important a certified FORTIFIED Roof ™ can be to protecting homes, the NCIUA teamed up with the IBHS to offer the grant as a pilot program. Grants will be issued at a first-come, first-served basis until June 15, 2019 or until the grant funding is depleted. For more information, you can go to StrengthenYourRoof.com or call 1-844-NCROOFS.
If you own property by the coast, I recommend that you check out this program. It can save you money on a new roof and could make a big difference during a significant weather event. As always, feel free to contact the G. Suggs Insurance office with any questions you may have about property by the beach or in Raleigh.
